Here is Shambala, which has been my home in Accra, Ghana for nearly three years. As I have said in earlier blogs, I decided to start returning to the USA and came back to the USA in September, 2008. In my last blog I entreated you all to join me in prayers because I was hoping to sign a lease for my new apartment. Well, the Lord was willing and I signed the lease on October 1st and moved in a few days later. I want to share photos of the first time I actually saw my new apartment. Here is the front of the building.
I am entering the front entrance here.
I am so pleased that there are porches with rocking chairs on each floor.
The first floor porch overlooks this nice fountain.
There are community rooms on each floor. There is a library, computer room, barber shop/beauty salon, crafts room, exercise/weight room, community kitchen and two laundry rooms on each floor.
First, though I have to sign my lease with the housing manager.
I enter my apartment #201.
Here is the kitchen. With a dishwasher, no less.There is a good sized bathroom near the entrance.And another bathroom off the master bedroom.There are safety bars for the elderly or disabled in each bathroom.And there is a large walk-in closet.There is a ceiling fan in each bedroom. and a ceiling fan in the living room.
I already love my new apartment.
Those of you who are retirees like me, if you have not already done so, you will welcome downsizing to a nice small/medium sized apartment like this one as we coast into our really senior years. God is SOOOOOO Good!.
